Renewable energy from evaporating water

Renewable energy from evaporating water

An immensely powerful yet invisible force pulls water from the earth to the top of the tallest redwood and delivers snow to the tops of the Himalayas. Yet despite the power of evaporating water, its potential to propel self-sufficient devices or produce electricity has remained largely untapped -- until now.

Airborne Wind Energy Conference Netherlands 15-16 June Part Two

There is healthy disagreement among everyone concerning the optimal products, with some going to grid applications first then planning off-grid or, like Makani, looking only at on-grid.

Airborne Wind Energy Conference Netherlands 15-16 June Part One

This is the leading event on this subject: it moves around the world. AWE is the generation of electricity by flying devices in the wind, whether tethered or untethered. Almost all such projects involve tethered devices, over 30 being kites. Some are tethered aircraft that can take off and land themselves

Unlocking the energy stored in plant cell walls

By virtue of their chloroplasts, plants are superb harvesters of solar energy. They use it to build leaves, flowers, fruits, stems, and roots. We harvest a small percentage of that energy in the form of food and a smaller amount in the form of wood for heating.

Growth in High-powered Energy Harvesting

Growth in High-powered Energy Harvesting

The new reality is that energy harvesting - creation of off-grid electricity where it is needed, using ambient energy - is now one subject from microwatts for wireless sensors to tens of kilowatts for vehicles and buildings. This is because it increasingly involves the same technologies, locations and companies. One structure, such as a remote building, will tend to use a range of energy harvesting from very low power EH for wireless sensors to very high power EH for charging those newly announced Tesla house batteries.
